recover mail from Exchange database

By dennisbv ·
Does anyone one know how if I can exstract Mail from an Exchange 2000 database? I have the old Exchange server that I have the Excahnge databases on but it will not mount and I am wondering if there is a way I can extract a coulple of user mailboxes. We recently moved from a dying Exchange 2000 server to a new Exchange 2003 server and there were a couple of users mailboxes that were not moved. So is there a way I can extract them from the database with out have to remount the database? I have this server removed from AD and I donot want to re add it to my domain because of some replication issues from this server. I have the server isolated and I did an authorative restore on it so it thinks it is the domain.

Without remounting? Don't think so. . .

The Exmerge utility from MS will extract mailboxes for you. It can also merge them into your new Exchange org if you want. (Process with old Exchange box in a separate domain would be extract to .pst files, and import the .pst's in the new Exchange org.)

But, that won't work if your information store is corrupt and unmounted, as you indicate. So you'll need to solve that problem first. Here's a fairly comprehensive KB article for starters, if you want to go that route:
